Highlights of East Africa Gorilla Trekking, Safari and Beach Holiday

Inspirational safari & beach holiday to Tanzania and Uganda

This memorable trip features 3 of East Africa's greatest highlights; a gorilla trek in Bwindi National Park, a safari to the Serengeti National Park and a beach stay on the beautiful Island of Zanzibar. You will start at Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp, nestled deep in Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park. On your gorilla safari with your experienced guide, you will track deep into the forest with your intimate group and once you have located them, you will spend up to a maximum of 1 hour with a family of gorillas.

It's then off to Tanzania. To maximise your chances of seeing the wildebeest migration you will stay in a small mobile camp, Serengeti Safari Camp. Whatever time of year you travel it will be well placed for the herds to pass through. Discover these vastly different landscapes and enjoy activities including game drives, guided walks, bush picnics, sundowners and hot air balloon flights. The wildlife is outstanding throughout. The tail end of this epic adventure is a stay at Zawadi Hotel in Zanzibar. Here you can go swimming in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean and can go snorkeling straight from the beach. It’s a laid-back and utterly romantic hideaway offering an all-inclusive stay with the very best cuisine and personalized service.
